    My AT&T store said that they'll be available on a first come first serve basis as well, so I don't know what's up with this.

    All three of my local stores said that they would have phones in stock on the 24th and that they would all be for walk ins. I think this report is false. It might simply be that the second round of phones coming wont arrive till the 29th.

    That info is incorrect according to an AT&T representative

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was true. AT&T is well aware that the 24th will already be a hectic and challenging day with all the pre-order deliveries, activations, and the inevitable problems associated with the two. Adding walk-ins and further order processing would only exacerbate the situation. Not what some want to hear, but I think it would be a wise decision, to be honest.

    Just called my At&t, which isn't in a very good neighborhood, so many people don't go there to buy iphone's anyway, but that's where I've always gotten mine.. anywhoo she said they will have some available for first come first serve walk-in purchase.. I might camp, if best buy doesn't have one for me

    Seems to me that this is a good idea. AT&T needs to fullfil the pre-orders they took, which said would be sent on the 24th. If really wanted one on launch day, you likely would have preordered it.

    to add to this, I went to ATT today - they said they would have some, dont know how many.

    Went to Radioshack - they said they dont know if they are even getting them on the 24th.....

    Except ATT effed up my account and didn't get it figured out until after they had stopped taking pre-orders. I'd happily order from Apple and wait until July, but ATT has to manually override my eligibility in store so it's my only option.... and after Thursday who knows when they will get more in stock?

    There are plenty of people that weren't able to get through to pre-order as well.

    Plus, Apple and ATT want to see the long lines and campers for the free PR.

    I doublechecked.

    The word is around here is that it is a Nationwide issue and there will be NO iPhones for walk-ins on the 24th. Only pre-orders will be picked up if shipped to the store.

    I think the AT&T stores who you guys are called haven't got the memo yet.

    damn- looks like it's tru after all...

    DALLAS, June 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AT&T is on-track to deliver iPhone 4 to customers who preordered the device on June 15. We look forward to offering iPhone 4 to all other customers beginning Tuesday, June 29, when it goes on sale in all AT&T sales channels.

    Here are a few guidelines for customers buying iPhone 4 from AT&T:


    •Preordered for home or business delivery: iPhone 4 will begin arriving this week for customers who preordered. We'll send an email when each order has shipped.
    •Preordered for store delivery: AT&T retail representatives will begin calling customers this week to let them know their iPhone 4 is available for pick up in store.
    •Retail purchase (no preorder): AT&T plans to have iPhone 4 inventory – available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last – on June 29 in its retail locations, at http://www.att.com/, and in business sales channels. As inventory sells out, AT&T will offer the convenient option of purchasing iPhone 4 and having it delivered to a home or business or an AT&T store. As always, customers will receive an email once their order is placed, and again when it ships.

    Sometimes I feel like the only sane person in the room. Why on earth would any normal customer want to do a walk-in to a third party retailer, especially AT&T, rather than hit up an Apple store? I understand that Apple stores may not be as plentiful as other chains, but the ratio of customers to stock is a joke. Best Buy 20-70, AT&T to 100, Wal-Mart 1... ONE?!

    If you're going to make the effort, people, make it count. If there's an issue with your account, fix it at an AT&T store, then go to the Apple store to line up.

    I'm not sure if I can speak for others here, but there are 4 AT&Ts in my area and one authorised Mac retailer (they don't sell iPhones). The nearest Apple store is 100 miles away. I think I would rather go to AT&T than drive that far.
